I do not think it's dead, I do think that the current mods are still being updated, but I do not think many more mods are being made for 1.7.10 anymore. I would like to see new mods though...

Yea me too, I wish there was a way to make them all compatible with each other.

I'm fairly certain a lot of modders are working on making them 1.10.2 compatible or have stopped there.

Considering 1.7.10 is nearing 3 years old, it's safe to say it's dead, even from a modding standpoint. Most mods have been updated to 1.10.2 or newer.

No one uses 1.7 anymore! Why even try to find mods to that version?

"most mods" you mean some of the big ones? FRom a modding standpoint, 1.8 and up is awful.

There are still a lot of mods and modpacks only working with 1.7.10 but it seems like a lot of populair mods have updated to 1.8 and 1.10.2. Pixelmonmod is updated to 1.10.2 and all the 1.7.10 servers are drying out.

From what I remember, 1.8 made some changes that made updating to it more difficult. However, since then it's been comparatively simple to keep updated.

Why haven't some big mod developers updated past 1.7.10? They simply don't want to make any major changes to their code to make it work with newer versions. This I find rather self-centered, since they are refusing to "get with the times" because they don't want to do much recoding.
